Tuesday--April 10th, 2012

This article looks at the OOC schedule for the various leagues. It notes that UMass ties for the most BCS level schools in its OOC opponents.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phil Steele looks at the number of high quality players recruited by every school in FBS. UMass is ranked ahead of three MAC schools and thirteen other FBS/I-A teams.

I think it confirms our feeling that Coach Molnar and staff did a pretty good recruiting job in a limited amount of time. 

I count 21 JR's or RS JR's on the Spring Roster. Next year's class will be critical for us to be competitive in the MAC.

Georgia state announced that they will leave the CAA (short stay) and join the Sun Belt conference in 2013.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution looks at the move. This move may have ramifications for the A10. I would think Charlotte would like to do the same thing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

East Coast Bias looks at UConn prospects for 2012. Note that the Huskies aren't settled in the QB position either.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bobby Bowden thinks Akron will rebound.

The previous staff did a great job keeping fans updated with the progress of spring practice on the teams website.

So far video footage covered the first days practice, nothing more since. Are the practices closed as well?
